Artificial intelligence alerts doctors to possible findings on a chest X-ray with up to 99 % sensitivity. It speeds up image evaluation time by up to 33%. Direct implementation to the hospital’s PACS equipment. Does not change physician's workflow and speeds up ward throughput.
"I am confident that similar systems will significantly improve the quality of patient care in many ways, and I am excited that something similar has been created in the Czech Republic."- Prof. MUDr. Milan Kvapil, CSc., MBA for Forbes Czechia
AI helps in the work of a doctor. Saves time and money. These systems are tireless, they do not have vacations and sick days, and they can constantly evolve and thus become more precise and accurate over time, i.e., more experienced. Beginning, young doctors can be trained with these systems, and experienced doctors will have more time to deal with complex cases and to consult rather than the usual routine.
Compared to humans, artificial intelligence has one indisputable advantage. Unlike humans, and this applies to doctors too, of course, it never gets tired, has a bad day, and is not sick or moody. If it learns something, it never forgets. It does not know fatigue at the end of a night shift, a Friday afternoon, or the last day before a holiday.
AI is like a radiologist's Swiss Army knife. It allows us to focus on what is essential. Focus on diagnosing the patient correctly. It breaks up many of the routines and helps prevent burnout and overwork. It also reduces the error rate because we can try to work slower and more accurately.
